List of accessories needed to set up Biofloc fish farm.

Biofloc technology is a technique of enhancing water quality in aquaculture through balancing carbon and nitrogen in the system.

Here is the list of accessories:-

  1. Main Requirements
  • PVC Tarpaulin/Cement Tank
  • Wire Mesh for Tarpaulin Tank
  • Air Pump/Ring Blower
  • Probiotic (Transpower, Everfresh, Prozyta etc)
  • Test Kits (TDS, pH, NO2, NO3, DO, Salinity etc)
  • Mixed Accessories (Air Oxy Tube, Connector, Bubble Stone, Raw Salt, molasses, CaCo3 etc)
  • Feed (CP, Anmol, Ganga Kaveri etc)
  • Seed (Species such as shrimp and tilapia have physiological adaptations that allow them to consume Biofloc and digest microbial protein, thereby taking advantage of Biofloc as a food resource. Nearly all Biofloc systems are used to grow shrimp, tilapia, or carps)
  • Medicines (including minerals)

2. Additional Requirements

  • Outlet pipe (SWR Pipe)/UPVC of 3″ diameter with fittings
  • Plumbing fittings for water supply
  • Roof shade arrangement
  • Foam sheet (To use in between Tarpaulin and GI wire mesh and also for Tarpaulin bottom surface and base)
  • Nylon wire to tie

You need accurate information and its important to set up Biofloc fish farm and to be able to get a good profit from the business. You can not succeed without this know-how.

You should get the training from and only from an experienced Biochemical Engineer. Do not modify the engineering, it is already tested in the labs.

  • Basics of Aquaculture
  • Basics of Biofloc Technology (BFT)
  • Water Analysis or Lab Test
  • Water Preparation
  • Aeration System
  • Tank Setup
  • Seed Selection for Culture
  • Feed Selection and System
  • Biosecurity
  • Disease Management and Growth

Hope this will help. But, we always urge to consult with Biochemical Engineer and then take any decision.
